I Get Lifted

It's a glorious Fall Sunday in the city and it is time to tune into the spiritual side of House.  Here is the relentless classic "I Get Lifted" by house diva Barbara Tucker.  Ms. Tucker is a Brooklyn native whose impact on the dance music scene has been felt more in Europe than in her home country.  She scored a string of six #1 hits on the US Hot Dance Club Songs chart in the 1990s and well into the 2000s and several hits on the UK Singles Chart as well.  Ms. Tucker has worked with several of the best dance music producers. She arrived on the club scene during the early '90s with the emblematic "Beautiful People" and it's always been a favorite. "I Get Lifted" has a darker thumping beat with deeper message making this a footprint song that defined the new house sound during the mid to late '90s.  Several mixes have been made of this song but The "Go To Church Mix" and the X.T.C. remain  my all time favorites! Enjoy and get lifted!
